SMS Strawberry Grapefruit Preserves, yummy.....

My post will be a bit short, we just got back from vacation and I need to post for SMS, TWD and the Daring Bakers, whew, what a homecoming. This weeks recipe, Strawberry-Ruby Grapefruit Preserves, was chosen by Margot of Effort to Deliciousness. Our recipes are from The Sweet Melissa Baking Book, we try a new recipe each week with the option of participating or not, as long as we make a couple of recipes each month. This is an awesome group with a limit of 50 bakers, easy to visit each week and comment.

I love making jams, preserves, marmalade and just about anything you are able to put in a jar and can!!! This combination of strawberries and grapefruit was delicious, easy and made 5 pint jars, enough but not too much. Melissa has a master recipe with several options and I would definitely make this again.
